This book embraces all of the important architectural movements and influences of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
|Combining a fascinating, thought-provoking and – above all – readable text with over 800 photographs, plans and sections, this exciting new reading of modern architecture is a must for students and architecture enthusiasts alike. Organised largely as a chronology, chapters necessarily overlap to allow for the discrete examination of key themes including typologies, movements and biographical studies, as well as the impact of evolving technology and country-specific influences.
Colin Davies was Professor of Architectural Theory at London Metropolitan University and is the author of several books, including Key Houses of the Twentieth Century and Thinking About Architecture (both Laurence King). He has also written monographs on the work of Michael Hopkins, Nicholas Grimshaw and Norman Foster, and contributes to architectural journals worldwide.
